PTI had quoted an official from the secretariat who had confirmed that such a incident had happened. “The wheel on the left rear-end of the Mercedes carrying Bachchan got detached from the vehicle on Dufferin Road when he was going to the airport to catch a flight for Mumbai on Saturday morning," said the senior official at the secretariat.
Early today (17 November), Bachchan also posted a Hindi poem by a fan mocking how people cook up stories.
